Markelle Fultz joked he might have signed with Big Baller Brand if it didn't help the Ball family© File photo Markelle Fultz joked he might have signed with Big Baller Brand if it didn't help the Ball family Markelle Fultz looks set to go as the No. 1 pick when Philadelphia makes its selection at Thursday's NBA draft - something he's wanted to achieve directly in competition with Lonzo Ball.

While Ball had the more successful season in collge, Fultz has done his part to fuel a rivalry that will carry into the NBA. Last week, Fultz signed a shoe contract with Nike, but he had joked that he considered signing with LaVar Ball's Big Baller Brand. The brand released a $495 pair of ZO2 sneakers, which weren't even ready in time for Lonzo's Lakers workout.

Still, Fultz signing with his rival’s small, family-owned apparel company , Big Baller Brand , would have been the most stunning possible move.

But in exchange with his trainer and the Washington Post's Kent Babb, Fultz had some jokes about Big Baller Brand:

Williams: You sure you don't want to sign with them?

Fultz: I was thinking about it, but then I would make him money, though.

Williams: Or lose them more money.

[Babb asks if there was serious consideration for Team Fultz to join Big Baller Brand]

Fultz: I don't know, honestly.

Williams: I don't think they've got money to sign nobody.

From that conversation, there's no real indication that Fultz considered Big Baller Brand. He mainly wanted to throw out a joke about making money for LaVar and Lonzo.

Given that ZO2 sneakers haven't shipped yet (and may not ship until November), it's likely BBB wouldn't even be in a position to sign a player like Fultz.

And he won't be charging $495 for his Nike sneakers either.
